Manu Ginobili returns for Game 2

SAN ANTONIO -- Spurs guard Manu Ginobili returned Wednesday night against the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 2 after missing the series-opening loss.

Ginobili sprained his right elbow a week ago. He wanted to play in Game 1 of the first-round series but Popovich continued to give his All-Star rest.

Ginobili is San Antonio's second-leading scorer, averaging 17.4 points.

The 33-year-old warmed up before Game 2 wearing a heavy sleeve on the elbow.
